Chris Iggo will lead The AXA IM Investment Institute Advisory Committee, which will meet quarterly to discuss the key macro and research themes to be covered by the Institute, and to complement the research AXA IM’s experts already provide. The committee consists of representatives from AXA IM Core, AXA IM Alts and senior members of the macroeconomic research, ESG research and Quant Lab teams. In addition, up to three external committee members who are yet to be determined will be appointed.
The Investment Institute will also host regular “AXA IM Institute talks”, a series of video discussions and interviews hosted by Chair, who will be joined by members of the committee, and external guests.
“At AXA IM, we are always looking at ways to improve our service, so we decided to make content produced across our investment and macro research teams more tailored to client needs and answer some of the most burning investment questions. Research is central to all our investment decisions. The move will bring our experts closer together, allowing for greater collaboration on a range of topics from Sustainability to Future Trends. I look forward to chairing our first committee meeting.”Chris Iggo, Chair of the AXA IM Investment Institute
